Cómo Estás?" The Base of the Spanish Language

In order to even have hopes of communicating in Spanish, you must know the basics such as hello, how are you, and goodbye. You have to know...
- Greetings
- How are you
- How to respond to how are you
- Goodbye


¡Buenos días!Good morning
¡Buenas tardes!Good afternoon
¡Buenas noches!Good night

How are you/ response

*¿Cómo estás (tú)?How are you? (informal)
*¿Cómo está (usted)?How are you? (formal)
¿Que tal?How are you? (informal or formal)
(Muy) Bein, gracias(very) Good, thanks
Más o menosokay
(Muy) mal(very) terrible
*¿Y tú?And you? (informal)
*¿Y usted?And you? (formal)

*when speaking spanish, you will tend to use certain words to address different people. Tú and usted mean the same thing but tú is used in informal situations and usted is used in formal ones.

**These are just a few emotions




¡Hasta luego!

See ya later!

¡Hasta pronto!

See ya soon!

¡Hasta mañana!

See ya tomorrow!

¡Qué le vaya bein!

Have a good one!

You are about to watch a video of two friends who haven't seen each other in a while. This is a real life situation that can happen between two spanish speaking people.
